Seeds to sow in July.

There are lots of lovely Biennial Flower Seeds to sow this month. Biennials are brilliant for early flowers next spring and just a little forward planning pays off big time. Many Biennials are beautiful in your garden, excellent for wildlife and brilliant for cut flowers too.

Wallflower Sunset MixedPlants like  Erysimum (Wallflowers) Digitalis (Foxgloves) Dianthus (Sweet William) Papaver nudicaule (Iceland Poppies) Myosotis (Forget-me-nots) Hesperis (Sweet Rocket) and Lunaria annua (Honesty) can be sown now ready for flowering next spring.

The best things about growing your own Biennial flowers from seed are:

  1. You can have MASSES of blooms in a colour scheme of your choice.
  2. There’s no need to break the bank… seeds are plentiful and INEXPENSIVE.
  3. There’s little effort required and anyone can do it. Sow them outdoors and let them grow on either in a ‘nursery’ bed or where you want them to flower next spring.
